Extra Weekending

With an extra day to day, we spent our weekend
* with a special visitor who arrived late Thursday night
* at the library gathering many books to read
* reading those books together and alone. strewing them all over the house - on the floor, tables, beds, everywhere (I think they are getting better at carrying books home, since we seem to end up with a lot)
* going to a movie
* staying home so others could go to the Air and Space Museum at Dulles
* finishing a special baby blanket as well as one little bootie while getting some time alone
* completing both of my books, Sheepish: Two Women, Fifty Sheep, and Enough Wool to Save the Planet and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and starting another
* walking to breakfast
* playing at the park
* another movie for some of us
* a date day with my oldest spent having dinner, lots of frozen yogurt and walking to the bookstore where we camped out in the humor section reading and knitting
* riding the bus home in the rain after the date, because mama was cold and is a wee bit afraid of the dark
* tricking daddy by texting him about missing the bus while standing outside the front door
* worrying about a favorite lost LEGO minifig head
* finding new shoes for everyone - don't laugh when you see our group of five sporting fivefingers (yes, I find them very comfortable although not too cute)
* starting a new project and completing six of twelve stripes
* saying goodbye


  1. wow! what a busy time - sounds great!. i have the potato pie book - is it good?

    1. I listened to the audiobook which I really enjoyed. It is a story told in letters. Each voice had its own narrator which was quite good.

  2. Looks like you have a great visitor!
    I have often wondered about fivefinger shoes so now I know, they really feel good huh?
    Love the book of the movie you saw, can't go wrong with Dr. Suess!

    1. I have been wearing them for several years. I even run in them. This time around, we bought the kids some. They prefer barefoot, but oh their feet get so gross!

  3. I adore that photo! My my my you certainly jammed in extra goodness in this weekend :)

  4. I absolutely loved the Lorax. I usually opt to stay home for the movie outings but I dragged everyone to see this one on opening weekend. We will definitely be adding it to our collection.

  5. the beginning of our weekend was packed but my monday it was all calmed down. nice to spend a day just chillin'. :)

  6. legos figures losing their heads are super serious! my almost 4yo will walk around looking everywhere for his man's head ;-)

  7. LOVE this photo!! I know it will be treausured many years from now, too.
    Busy weekend! Sounds very familiar. It's amazing how sometimes I feel like, as mothers, our days are filled with so much of the same happenings. Hope you found the minifig head... that's enough to turn the whole house upside down searching for. I know.
